We decided to go full-on-tourist, and went to the Muri Beach Club Hotel's Island Night at the Silver Sands. We're glad we did. First, the room is very pleasant, with seating for about 50, the pool on one side, and the lagoon and beach on the other. Ceiling fans and ocean breezes keep it very cool. The welcome was warm,...

We stayed at the Hotel that SilverSands is located. The ribs, steak, prawns and Thai soup was delish! Other food was decent but nothing to write home about. Service was good, some waitresses seemed bored and uninterested.

Pig and prawn night This is a must. Set up to be a sharing meal with your partner or a group. The pork ribs were marinated in the most flavoursome sauce and the meat was melt in your mouth. Great wine selection. The dessert was the best mousse I have ever had. With a hint of ginger it was smooth... More

So this is the not first time that I have dined on Friday's Pig and Prawn night. I did not write a review, however, last week I visited with a friend of mine. Not to sure whether it would be the same as the last time. We were greeted at the restaurant by a wonderful host Ovini who showed us... More

I have never had a bad meal at the Silver Sands Resturant. The portions are entree size but you do have the option of upsizing. The service is outstanding and the full bar is at your disposal. If you visit during January you may have the opportunity to hear the famous Peter Morgan perform. He is absolutely brilliant and makes... More

We stayed at Muri Beach for a week over New Year and had the pleasure of eating breakfast, lunch and dinner at SilverSands over the course of the trip. The daily menu for dinner consists of small plates at around $15, and they encourage you to get a few to share. Everything we had - lamb curry, gnocci, fish, steak... More

We were in Rarotonga for Christmas and and came here for the Christmas Lunch Buffet. It was simply brilliant with a great range of foods and with a packed restaurant there was plenty of food and the service staff coped very well. We left very satisfied and in typical Christmas fashion way too full!

I stayed at Muri Beach Club and had dinner in the Silver Sands. The menu was small entree sized meals designed so you could try a couple of dishes or have room for dessert. It is a great idea! We tried the lamb and also the vegetable with haloumi stack - both looked great and tasted great!

Got the catch of the day it was fantastic, fast service and high quality of food. if you return here they know your name and are very friendly. Ate many meals here all were excellent. Be aware of timings, the restaurant is closed between breakfast and lunch, also between lunch and supper.
